Cups – Anna Kendrick

This song has been such a fun song to listen to recently!  While on family vacation, I taught myself the rhythm pattern with a cup, then learned how to sing along with the words of this song.  Fun!  Once I came back from vacation, our two current music therapy interns re-wrote this song to reflect their 6 months of internship as it was coming to a close.  Of course, us 3 supervisors couldn’t let them be the only ones to write new lyrics, so we wrote our own version too!  It was a great way to finish up our time with them.  So…all I can say is: “You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone!”

Cups – Anna Kendrick

I got my ticket for the long way ’round
Two bottle ‘a whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow, wha-do-ya-say?

Chorus 1:
When I’m gone, when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.

Chorus 2:
When I’m gone, when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.

I got my ticket for the long way ’round
The one with the prettiest of views
It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers, it’s got sights to give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you. Chorus 2, Chorus 1, Chorus 2
